Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) issued the following statement:

“We now know that the so-called Steele dossier was paid for by the Democratic Party in an effort to gin up negative information regarding then-candidate Trump.  What the American people deserve to know is whether the information compiled by Steele on the Democrats’ dime was used by the Obama administration to obtain approval to conduct surveillance against Trump associates.  The FBI has stonewalled producing these documents for months and their production shouldn’t be limited to closed door viewing by a small number of members of Congress.  The Trump administration should immediately declassify all the documents used to obtain surveillance warrants against Trump or his associates.”
